Gabriel Charles takes Del Mar’s Eddie Read Stakes

Sam Britt and Michael House’s Gabriel Charles had a bit of early trouble in Saturday’s $400, 000 Eddie Read Stakes (G1) Stakes on the turf at Del Mar, but he rallied down the stretch, took command a sixteenth from home and drew off to a 3-3/4 length victory. It’s the second graded stakes win for the 5-year-old son of Street Hero, winner of the Del Mar Derby (G2) at three and the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint Preview Stakes at two. The victory is the third straight by an OBS graduate in the Eddie Read (G1). August Yearling Sale graduate Jeranimo took the 2013 renewal and March grad Tom’s Tribute captured the race a year ago. Gabriel Charles was purchased on the recommendation of Gary Young by Mr. House for $160,000 out of the Price Thoroughbreds consignment at the 2012 OBS April Sale after breezing an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show. Trained by Jeff Mullins, he’s now 11-4-4-1 with earnings of $584,400. watch his under tack video

Alex and JoAnn Lieblong’s High Dollar Woman took the lead at the start of the $206,900 Indiana Oaks (G2) at Indiana Grand Race Course on Saturday and stayed there all the way, winning her first stakes race by a length. The 3-year-old filly by Super Saver, trained by Steve Hobby, is now 7-3-1-0 and has earned $210,945 to date. Consigned by Eddie Woods, Agent, to the 2014 OBS March Sale, she was sold for $675,000 after working a quarter in :21 flat at the Under Tack Show. watch her under tack video
